The Fraser Lab, since 1993

We study many aspects of ecology and environmental biology. We encourage and support participation in each others’ research as well as in coordinated distributed international network studies.

Our lab at Thompson Rivers University campus in Kamloops is involved in research projects relating to ecosystem reclamation, climate change, invasive species mitigation, agroforestry, trophic level dynamics, and biodiversity.

The central interior of British Columbia offers unique areas to perform research. Whether you’re an experienced researcher or just starting out, we can find something that will suit you. Contact us today to join our lab!
